First announced last month, Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie has arrived in San Diego with a special showcase called “The Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition.” Following its debut at Comic-Con, the models and props will tour the world in advance of the film’s October 5th release.
When the tour is complete, they will have visited seven countries, including Spain, France, England, Japan, Mexico, Canada and the U.S.A.
“The Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition” captures the magic of the filmmaking process and gives audiences an exclusive glimpse into the stop-motion animation process brought to life by visionary filmmaker Tim Burton. From original sketches drawn by Burton, to extensive props, sets and puppets, the exhibition showcases the artistic detail and vision that has gone into bringing this heartwarming tale to the big screen in 2012’s most highly anticipated animated movie. “The Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition” delves into the world of a boy who, inspired by science and the love of his dog, brings his beloved pet back from the dead.
